In Gioia Taura from the province of Reggio Calabria, director Francesco Munzi struck gold looking for local talent for his film Anime Nere, Black Souls.
Black Souls The Best Film Of 2014
Handsome, young Guiseppe Fumo was at school, minding his own business, when a film company showed up and changed his life. When casting people were looking for actors for Francesco Munzi’s film Anime Nere (Black Souls) Fumo decided to check it out. Good thing for him, for Munzi, and for us that he did.
Fumo, who had never acted before or taken an acting class is uncannily natural playing Leo, the juvenile delinquent in the dysfunctional ‘Ndrangheta family in Calabria. ” I never dreamed of behaving like Leo in real life because you see what happens to people like that in the film.”
“It was my first time in front of a camera”.
Giuseppe wasn’t dreaming of being an actor either. He was going to school, playing soccer, and hanging out with his friends. He’s got a girlfriend, normal, happy parents, and two older sisters. He did a little audition, and a few days later he was in a movie. A really good one too.
He’s 22 today! Watch Black Souls and get to know this rising star and his incredible talent.
